Seven Things About A Polished Touch
1. My mani is currently Essie Jag-U-Are with Milani Ruby Jewels as my accent nail though by the time I post this I will be wearing a purple polish, although the particular brand and shade haven't been chosen yet. *chuckles* (Update: I'm wearing Rimmel Deliciously Dark, post coming soon!)
2. One of my goals for 2012 is to learn how to use my Konad stamping items.
3. I love doing tags/questionnaires! Tag me, people!
4. My lipgloss/lipstick collection is getting out of hand.
5. My hair straightener is white with brown giraff print. I love it. It came with a matching mini straightener, too, which is adorable.
6. My hair dryer is hot pink.
7. I really care about my blogging friends - you guys make me happy to be part of such a friendly community. :)
(Sidenote: I was staring at my hair straightener/hair dryer trying to figure out what to say for my facts, hence their inclusion in said facts.)

Butterfly Award

The rules:
Link back to the person who awarded you
Answer the following questions
Award 10 other bloggers

I have received this award before, however if I'm not mistaken, I believe the questions are different. (I'm still very grateful for the thoughtful award, Traci!)

The Questions:
What's your favorite song?
Yiruma - River Flows In You (Yeah, yeah the one that is mislabelled as "Bella's Lullaby" Shut up, people, it's a beautiful piano song.) It had over 55,000 plays in my iTunes before I had a laptop meltdown and had to get my new one.

What's your favorite dessert?
Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, without the chocolate chips.

Who's your favorite pet?
My dog.

Black or white?

What's your biggest fear?
I'm sure it's not that different from others: spiders, clowns, the dark. I also can't stand to have my feet/legs uncovered when sleeping. You never know what might be lurking under your bed!

What's your best feature?
Physical: eye colour. (Hazel green, but they vary the whole spectrum.: gold, green, bronze, brown ... usually you can see turquoise right around the outline of my iris, too.)
Non-physical: my compassion.

What's your everyday attitude?
Generally content.

What is perfection?
A new bottle of polish waiting for me at home, picked up by the wonderful Mr.Polish as a surprise. :)

What is your guilty pleasure?
Spending on polish. I'm veeeery guilty. ;)

As for the people I will tag - I chose those who have commented recently on my blog. 
Thanks girls, you make this whole bloggin' thing a joy and a pleasure!

Daisy - Inspired
Melissa - Swatch Me Now


  1. Thank you for the tag! I really enjoyed reading this. By the way, I did actually think of Twilight when I saw your song choice for #1, only because I've seen it referred to as Bella's Lullaby a million times. I'm not even sure why that is, but your response was funny!

  2. Funny, I just tagged you as well! haha, thanks darling :)

  3. Melissa, you're very welcome and I'm glad you think I'm funny, I try. ;)

    You're welcome, Meredith! :)
    Julie, so sweet. Thank you!

  4. I will do these! I love doing tags, I just like to talk about myself lol. But I like reading everyone else's answers too! I also have to have all my limbs covered when I'm sleeping otherwise I feel like something is going to eat me in the middle of the night.

  5. *laughs* Oh Laura, good thing I don't mind you yammerin' on about yourself. ;) Also, I'm glad that I'm not the only night time scaredy cat.

  6. Aw, you're such a sweetheart <3 omg I can't wait to see you post some konad manis! Haha I laughed when you mentioned "Bella's Lullaby"...it is a really pretty song. I actually had it as my alarm tone for a while haha.

  7. Thank you so much! I tagged you for the Cute Blog Award.


Thank you for taking the time to read & comment, it means a lot! All your lovely comments are moderated so I can read each & every sweet thing you have to say. :)
